    Anybody remember how not too long ago Obama said "we are not at war against radical Islam", or "no more war on terror"? Or that before Benghazi that al-Qaeda was on the run?

    Now the US is pulling back from the world and Obama, the State Department, and DoD have nothing to say.

    The events in Egypt , Iraq and Syria and the rapid rise of AQ in such fertile atmosphere has made security concern for US on high priority.

    Better be safe by shutting off embassy then be sorry later.
